What is Truth?

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” – Galatians 4:16

What is truth? This fundamental question has been debated through the ages. Truth is often obscured behind a smokescreen of lies and distortions. Because of concerted efforts to obscure truth, many people have become weary of searching for it. Our modern society, plagued by a Marxist mindset, has gone so far as to reject the notion of truth entirely. All things are relative and subjective, we allege. Yet, for those willing to accept it, there is a simple and eternal answer to the question, “What is truth?”

In a modern revelation, the Lord defined truth thus:

“And truth is knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;

“And whatsoever is more or less than this is the spirit of that wicked one who was a liar from the beginning” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:24-25).

Automatically, many of you who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that enjoys this refreshing revelation will dismiss it as fickle fantasy or Devilish delusion. Yet, whether you believe the verity that God speaks to man today and reveals His will to prophets as He anciently promised that He would (Amos 3:7), you must admit the logical soundness of this definition. Truth is, simply, a knowledge of the reality of all things. It is an accurate description of the nature and veracity of things as they really are and as they really will be.

Truth is eternal. Truth does not change. Truth does not bend to popular opinion. Truth is a constant now and forever regardless of popularity or application. We may say that if a thing is not eternal, it is not truth. Naturally, then, we cannot speak of all things as “truth.” A temporary and fleeting thing might be deemed “true,” but it is not necessarily truth.

Truth is of higher-than-normal importance and includes such things as eternal laws, principles, and realities. Facts, if they are indeed true, will never change. If something was true yesterday, it will be true today, and it will be true tomorrow.

Being immutable and unalterable, truth commands our approval and recognition. In all things, we should seek to obtain, promote, and defend truth. It doesn’t matter if we dislike it or if it is unpopular. Truth does not care about your feelings. Truth does not consider your situation. Truth merely is. It is simply the reality of things as they were, are, and are to come.

All truth is not of equal value. It might be true that you ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch. But is that “truth” in the sense we are discussing? Is that as important or meaningful as the reality that God exists, for instance? One of our never-ending tasks in life is to discern trivial truths from imperative ones – and then cherish and follow the impactful truths. We must come to learn what is truly important and what is not; what is eternally relevant and what is fleeting.

Truth is of such significance that the Lord was able to declare “the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). He understood this better than anyone, for He is the sovereign Lord of truth. When the hardhearted Jews sought to kill Him for His teachings, He boldly testified of the source of His doctrine:

“[Y]e seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God” (John 8:40).

All truth, ultimately, comes to us from Almighty God via the Holy Spirit. In fact, it can come in no other way. John taught:

“And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:6).

The Spirit – not our meager intellects, physical senses, or instruments of science – conveys truth. Truth, being eternal, cannot be learned through temporal means. It is vain for the man of science or the doubting atheist to demand “proof” of God’s existence, for God can only be known through the individual revelations of His Spirit to your spirit and cannot be quantified.

Furthermore, His Spirit does not give you sacred revelations if you do not ask for them or if He knows that you would not be humble enough to accept and follow them if received. “Ask, and it shall be given you,” we are told (Matthew 7:7). But only ask in faith and with the sincere willingness to follow any answer received or your petition will go unanswered.

As noted, truth is eternal. All truth harmonizes with itself. A revelation of truth from God in New Testament times cannot contradict a truth revealed in Old Testament times, and vice versa. By the same token, if it was true 2,000 years ago that “the Spirit is truth,” then God would reveal the same verity to modern man. This principle of eternal consonance bears itself out in a contemporary revelation through the Prophet Joseph Smith. In that revelation, the Lord explained:

“For the word of the Lord is truth, and whatsoever is truth is light, and whatsoever is light is Spirit, even the Spirit of Jesus Christ” (Doctrine and Covenants 84:45).

And again, the Savior has declared:

“The Spirit of truth is of God. I am the Spirit of truth. . . .

“The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:26, 36).

His testimony of Himself has always been the same. During His earthly ministry, the Lord taught:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

If we come to Christ and seek the Spirit, we will know that Jesus spoke the truth. All truth comes from the same source. And spiritual truth can only be learned through the Holy Spirit. Now, as always, “the right way is to believe in Christ” (2 Nephi 25:29).

Here are a few truths I have learned for myself through the Holy Spirit, or the Spirit of truth. I know these things are real and I testify of their authenticity with all the passion and energy of my soul.

I know that my Heavenly Father exists, that His Son Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of mankind, that the Holy Ghost actively imparts truth to those who listen with an open heart are willing to heed His promptings, and that these are three separate, personal Beings who tirelessly work for our salvation.

I know that I am a literal child of God who once lived in His presence and that He loves me.

I know that the Lord’s words “shall not pass away” (Mark 13:31) because they are truth and truth is eternal.

I know that the Holy Bible, when accurately rendered and properly interpreted, is the divine word of God.

I know that The Book of Mormon is true scripture revealed by Heaven and that it supports and clarifies the Bible’s witness that Jesus is the Christ and that it is only through Christ’s atoning blood and mercy that we are saved.

I know that the Lord reveals His will to mankind today through living prophets and that at this current time the Lord’s prophet, seer, and revelator on earth is a man named Russell M. Nelson.

I know that the U.S. Constitution was inspired by the Lord and that it is the only political document on earth that bears His divine stamp of approval.

I know that our Founding Fathers were good, honorable, and wise men – devout Christians raised up by God to establish the first free nation in modern times.

I know that the United States of America, despite her glaring flaws, is the greatest nation on earth and constitutes a Promised Land and the Lord’s base of operations in these last days of turmoil before His return in glory.

I know that communism is Satan’s counterfeit to the Lord’s Gospel and to His Plan of Freedom and that it is the greatest threat to mankind.

And I know that the Lord has already triumphed over Satan and that all of Satan’s schemes will eventually fail, regardless of how dominant they appear today.

I don’t know all things perfectly, but these things I do know with unshakable surety. I testify of them. I give my personal witness of their validity and truthfulness. I testify that the Holy Ghost has born witness to my soul of these things. I will wear out my life defending them and promoting them because I know, even if others do not, that they are true.

What is truth? Truth is a knowledge of things as they really are now and in eternity. Truth is eternal. Truth emanates from God. Truth can be learned only through the ministration of the Holy Spirit. Truth will triumph over all lies in the end. And because it reigns eternally victorious over all error and centers in Jesus Christ, the truth shall make us free.

Truth Doesn’t Sell

Here’s a secret you may not know: Truth doesn’t sell. Not very well, anyhow. A general rule of thumb is that when you see national best-selling or major award-winning books, they do not present the full picture. Of course, this does not apply in every case. However, by and large, the books that present “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” about how our world operates and who pulls the strings behind the scenes do not become the best sellers and their authors are not household names. This is the tragic reality in our age of universal deceit.

truth-1080x767

The big-name conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, and Sean Hannity often do good work and help inform people on many important topics. They are generally fun to listen to and sometimes they even flip back a corner of the curtain and give glimpses of what’s really going on. However, these types of de facto celebrities stop short. They are half measures. They do not part the curtain of secrecy far enough or long enough to reveal who is really running our world into the ground.

To these big-name conservative figures, the culprit for everything wrong is “the Democrats” – and possibly a “Rino” Republican now and then. Or it might be the Hollywood celebrities or CNN commentators. Some even go so far as to identify the Marxist billionaire George Soros as the root of all evil (this last deduction is closer to reality, but falls short nonetheless).

Yet, these same media personalities, talking heads, and best-selling authors never speak of the Order of Illuminati, the Masonic elite, the Sabbatean-Kabbalists, the Jesuits, the New Age gurus, Lord Maitreya and the Ascended Masters, the Tavistock Institute, the Round Table groups, Luciferianism, Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA), or Satanic communism. They don’t name-drop figures like Helena Blavatsky, Albert Pike,  Moses Hess, Lord Rothschild, Jacob Schiff, Annie Besant, and Benjamin Creme. And they don’t dare utter the word “conspiracy” unless they’re commenting on lower level conspiracies or denouncing people like me as “conspiracy theorists” for suggesting that their worldview isn’t perfectly correct, that vaccines aren’t completely safe, that 9/11 wasn’t carried out by a handfull of Arabs with boxcutters, that JFK wasn’t killed by a physics-defying bullet, or that, God forbid, Israel isn’t God’s holy Kingdom on earth.

Furthermore, these mainstream media voices only give you a cursory look at some very important subjects, often omitting the salient facts. For instance, you have doubtless heard of the Federal Reserve and know how it prints money out of thin air. And maybe you are even privy to the fact that it is a privately-owned entity and not federal at all. But do you know that the Federal Reserve plan was concocted by a literal conspiracy of powerful men using aliases and meeting secretly on Jekyll Island three years prior to the fraudulent passing of the Federal Reserve Act? Certainly you won’t see the details of that fateful conspiracy discussed in best-selling books or on prime-time radio and TV.

The talking heads are often deceived and thus present a very stunted view of history – a false view that leads to numerous wrong assumptions in other matters. For instance, you have heard the conservative champions repeat over and over and over that President Reagan won the Cold War, that we defeated the Evil Empire, that capitalism triumphed over communism, and that socialism “always fails.” Each and every one of these assertions is patently, verifiably, and utterly false.

communism-topic-gettyimages-89856241

As I have painstakingly documented in my books and articles over many years, the Soviet Union did not collapse. The fake “fall” of the USSR came about according to a long-rang plan instituted by the Soviets decades prior as forewarned by numerous defectors such as Anatoliy Golitsyn and confirmed in the blunt writings and speeches of conspirators like Mikhail Gorbachev. The Soviets faked their demise not because they were in a weak position, but because they occupied the high ground and needed one final ruse to get the West to disarm and go to sleep. And does socialism really fail? True, it fails to provide its adherents with prosperity, happiness, or Freedom, but that is by design. The goal of socialism (which is nothing but a wing of the greater communist conspiracy) is to enslave, destroy, and control – all of which is does so masterfully. In fact, so thoroughly successful has communism/socialism been that quite literally every government on planet earth has adopted socialist principles and policies. Our own Republic, the last bastion of any semblance of Liberty and the final hope for humanity, has adopted all ten planks of The Communist Manifesto to one degree or another. Yet we are to believe the voices on the radio when they say “communism is dead,” “capitalism won,” and “there is no communist conspiracy” today.

These conservative celebrities also have a weak sense of discernment when it comes to certain historical figures who served the conspiracy. For instance, Martin Luther King, Jr. is held up almost universally as a role model despite the fact that he was an immoral, lying, communist agitator who plagiarized his doctoral theses, rubbed shoulders with known communist agents, and tried to stir up violence and race war despite his public claims to the contrary. When it comes to judging people by the true content of their character, these big-name figures frequently fail. And because the blind are leading the blind, a lot of people are falling into the ditch (Matthew 15:14).

Again I note that the big names will not touch conspiracies. When they do, it is to scoff or to tell people off for believing in them. They don’t dare discuss alternative theories about 9/11, the Oklahoma City Bombing, the JFK assassination, Sandy Hook, the “Holocaust,” and countless other incidents where the “official” version of events lacks the ring of truth and falls flat. They don’t talk about the Illuminati-Masonic-Kabbalist conspiracy concocted at the 1782 Congress of Wilhelmsbad. They won’t even detail the more modern manifestation of this conspiracy – the communist world revolution. They might talk about the symptoms of the disease – feminism, environmentalism, international terrorism, modern liberalism, etc., – but they don’t connect them to their true, Satanic, conspiratorial source.

For all the good they do, and they indeed do a fair amount of good, the well-known conservative authors and radio personalities fall short. They don’t paint the bigger picture for their audience. Like an annoyingly incomplete jigsaw puzzle, they don’t have enough of the pieces for you to make out the complete image. God bless them for the people they help, but I pray the Lord opens their eyes to see the bigger picture so that they can then take their audience the rest of the way down the road to comprehension of the enemy we face; for we must first correctly identify the enemy before we can defeat him.

Yes, you know Limbaugh, Savage, Beck, and the whole gang. You hear their names almost daily. However, you may not know the names of some of the best researchers out there who raise their voices against conspiracy, write books on critical subjects, and advocate the truth in an articulate way. Among others, political analyst Joel Skousen, researcher Jake Morphonios, radio host Jeff Rense, and authors Ken Bowers, Henry Makow, Deanna Spingola, MS King, Thomas Goodrich, and John Coleman, do tremendous work. Scores of other authors and rabble-rousers such as myself are even less well-known, yet use all available resources to trumpet the truth. And outlets such as World Affairs Brief, Blackstone Intelligence, ZeroHedge, the Washington Free Beacon, The Liberty Daily, Tomato Bubble, and Rense are targets for both the corrupt Establishment and their Social Justice Warrior lackeys, and mainstream conservatism, because they approach near to the truth. You know you’re over the target when you start taking flak.

When will conservatives wake up? When will conservative teachers and radio gurus fully commit to the battle and dare to tell the full truth? When will Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and the others start researching and teaching the pertinent reality about the Illuminati, the Jesuit Order, the New Age movement, Lord Maitreya, Skull and Bones, the Council on Foreign Relations, Freemasonry, the Bohemian Club, and every other clique and secret order advocating that foul, pagan, communist ideology? God help conservative America wake up before it is too late!

Ultimately, only a hardened segement of Christian constitutionalists can save our Republic from total ruin. Only alert, awake, and active Americans who understand the occult conspiracy trying to enslave us can, with God’s help, prevent our total subjugation. Only the voluntary sacrifice of our all on the altar of Freedom, truth, and right is sufficient to regain our Independence.

I leave you with a factual statement from Ronald Reagan that applies more today than when he said it in his classic 1964 speech “A Time for Choosing.”

“Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? . . . If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he’ll eat you last.

“If all of this seems like a great deal of trouble, think what’s at stake. We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. . . .

“. . . If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.

“. . . Where, then, is the road to peace? Well, it’s a simple answer after all.

“You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” There is a point beyond which they must not advance. . . .

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”
